  • Brandon Knight - G - Houston Rockets

    Brandon Knight (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Sixers.

    Knight has missed the past few games with this knee soreness, which happens to be on the same knee where he tore his ACL in 2017. His absence doesn't mean much for fantasy, but the Rockets would still like to have healthy bodies when they can.

    Brandon Knight (sore left knee) has already been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    Knight has missed the last two games with knee problems, and it's concerning because it's the same knee where he tore his ACL in 2017. While he didn't play a big part for the Rockets, it's not like the team is in a position to turn away healthy contributors. Knight's absence won't impact fantasy leagues aside from forcing more minutes upon whoever is left standing.

    The Rockets will be working with a skeleton of a roster on Monday with Brandon Knight ruled out with a sore knee.

    Knight has not had the come-back pop some people had hoped he would have with the Rockets and has been a shell of his former self. Leave him on the wire.

    Brandon Knight (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Before missing last game, Knight was coming off of his best game of the season dropping 12 points in 18 minutes. However, that game was a blowout and Knight hasn't recorded more minutes than that the entire season. It's good to see him back on the court after a rough past two years but he's nowhere near worth owning in leagues.

    Brandon Knight (sore left knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Magic.

    Knight did tear his left ACL in the July of 2017, so the Rockets are likely just exercising caution. Knight has been playing more lately, but he's still not an option in fantasy leagues.

    Brandon Knight (left knee soreness) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Knight tore his left ACL in July of 2017 so this isn't something to brush off, though you could also safely bet on Houston exercising extreme caution here. Knight's been playing a little bit more of late given Houston's gutted backcourt but it still hasn't been enough to lend him fantasy value.

    Brandon Knight was called upon for 11 minutes in Monday's win, finishing with one point, two assists and a steal.

    Knight was just recalled from a G-League rehab assignment, and while he'll have a chance to play with Chris Paul and Eric Gordon out we're not expecting much from him. Deep-leaguers can keep an eye out to see if he becomes a source of scoring punch but don't hold your breath.

    The Rockets have recalled Brandon Knight from his rehab assignment and he'll play on Monday.

    The Rockets will need Knight for a few minutes with Eric Gordon out. There's no reason for fantasy owners to pay much attention to him, though all bets might be off if Austin Rivers gets hurt. Guards in Houston are having some terrible luck this year.

    Brandon Knight was sent down to the G-League for a rehab assignment on Saturday.

    Knight has already appeared in six games for the Rockets since his return from knee surgery and has been a DNP-CD in the last two. Averaging only 1.3 points and 8.5 minutes in those six, the Rockets figured a stint in the G-League would help him get up to speed faster. Being in his seventh season in the league, Knight had to approve the transfer.

    Brandon Knight will have a 20-minute limit in Saturday's game against the Spurs.

    It's hard to see Knight getting anything more than that anytime in the near future but obviously it will be something to monitor. We don't consider him an add outside of very deep formats.

  • Brandon Knight - G - Houston Rockets

    Brandon Knight logged 18 minutes on Thursday night, finishing with three points on 1-of-5 shooting.

    The line is obviously nothing to write home about but Knight is looking at an increased role in the coming weeks with Chris Paul sustaining a hamstring injury tonight. Knight is working his way back from a brutal set of injuries in his own right so the Rockets probably won't push him, but he's the clear backup as far as true point guards go — Michael Carter-Williams was a DNP-CD. Knight makes some sense in very deep leagues.

    Brandon Knight logged six minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.

    Knight has a long way to go before he's fantasy relevant and we'll let you know when that happens.

    Brandon Knight (knee) will play "a few minutes" on Thursday night.

    It'll be Knight's season debut and his first game since February of 2017. The Rockets will take it easy with him and this isn't likely to do much in any fantasy circles, though it wouldn't be surprising to see Knight hop over Michael Carter-Williams on the depth chart.

    Brandon Knight (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game.

    Whenever Knight returns it'll be his first NBA game action since February 15, 2017. Houston's bench is really hurting for scoring, especially if Eric Gordon continues to start, but it's going to be hard for them to lean on Knight given the amount of rust he'll need to shake off. It's possible he emerges as an option in extremely deep leagues but most of his fantasy utility figures to come from stream appeal when one of Houston's stars sits out.

    Brandon Knight is likely to make his Rockets debut next week.

    It's been over a year on the sidelines for Knight, who is on his way back from an offseason knee procedure. He'll be tasked with giving the Rockets some extra scoring off the bench, though the team probably can't lean on him right away even with the state of their depth. He's only a deep-league option but might have some wider appeal if Chris Paul or James Harden gets hurt.
